Ol’ Blighty Cheese and Pickle Scrolls


Ol’ Blighty Cheese and Pickle Scrolls
22 October 2013

As you know our lives have been fairly CRAZY over the last few forevers, but finally we are back home and life is starting to slip back in to that familiar groove. It is so comforting when the alarm chimes at it’s usual time and you get up to do the chores you always do Monday to Friday.

School holidays and big weekends away are fun, don’t get me wrong, but the rhythm that we perfect in those busy times are bliss to an organisation freak like me. 6:00am make baked treat, 6:15am chuck in oven, 6:20am exercise (this starts tomorrow), 6:45am baked treat ready, 6:50am cup of tea, 7:00am kids up!

Let’s get straight to it.

Old Blighty Cheese and Pickle Scrolls

I have to admit,  this could be one of my all time favourite sandwich combos. When you’ve got two pieces of fresh bread, TONNES of butter, pickles and a good cheddar, it seriously can’t be beat. But when you wake to no bread in the house, you have to think quick smart.

I read on instagram the other day of someone making a pizza dough from self raising flour and yoghurt. I gave this a go for this recipe,  I have to admit I still prefer my old school pizza dough over the quick and easy flour/yoghurt combo (BUT if you ARE in a hurry, like I was today, the self raising flour recipe is still delicious).

What you need

  • 1 cup self raising flour
  • 1 cup natural or greek yoghurt
  • 5 – 6 tablespoons of mustard pickle or a chutney of your choice (I used zucchini relish, we have 5 billion jars of it)
  • 250g of grated cheddar cheese (yummy cheddar, not plastic cheese and GRATE IT YOURSELF!!)
  • 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil (to grease pan)

What to do

  1. Preheat the over to 220˚C and grease a baking tray.
  2. Grate your yummy cheddar cheese and get a tough guy to open your jar of pickles for you, so they are at the ready!
  3. Mix the flour and the yoghurt together to form a ball. The recipe I found said to add some more flour if it was a bit wet, I added quite a bit extra, so make sure you keep the flour handy.
  4. Knead the dough for 5 – 8 minutes until you have a nice dough ready to roll out. (I cheated and used the Kitchenaid dough hook and did some laundry while it did it’s business, but hands work just as well).
  5. Roll the dough out flat, until is is about half a centimetre thick
  6. Spread pickles and sprinkle cheese all over your dough.
  7. Roll your dough into a GIGANTIC long scroll.
  8. Cut your GIGANTIC long scroll in to smaller scrolls.
  9. Place the scrolls snug together on a baking tray lined with baking paper.
  10. Once all the scrolls are cuddling on the baking tray, sprinkle LIBERALLY more cheddar, feel free to grate more if you need to (I always find I have eaten half of the cheese by the time I have got to this point).
  11. Place the tray in the oven for 10 minutes on 220˚C, then turn heat down to 190˚ and bake for a further 25 minutes. (my oven is quite slow, so please make sure you keep an eye on your baking treats).
  12. Eat. Without burning your mouth.

  • Amity says:

    Made these last night with pumpkin stew – delicious! x

  • Amity says:

    For sure lady! This winter doesn’t want to budge 🙁 pop in for a coffee anytime x

  • I’ve just been having a wander around your blog. Great recipes & absolutely gorgeous photos – well done you!

  • Just linked over from veggie mama and have a look around your blog. Lovely photos. Do you take the photos at the same time as you spontaneously decide to bake cheese and pickle scrolls, that is seamless blogging your life stuff. Incredible

    • lunchlady says:

      There is always a camera nearby in our house. But my blogging skills fall short of incredible as I haven’t blogged a recipe for bloody ages!! Will be trying to get one up this week, before the weather turns mean again. Thanks so much for visiting. x

  • Rachel Donovan says:

    Just popped by the blog.. it’s been a while and saw this recipe. Perfect for a cold (but sunny) Saturday afternoon here in London.. and even though my fridge is almost entirely bare, I have everything for this recipe. So perfect for the post Christmas January budget! Thanks, I love your work x

  • Kristy says:

    Do you think you could freeze these once baked? For those morning I just don’t manage the fresh baked treat?

    • lunchlady says:

      YEAH! For sure!! I think that would be super easy. I am going to do a bakefest this weekend in preparation for school, might get some of these in the freezer too. x

  • Hannah says:

    Yay! How lovely is your blog?!? So, so happy to have found you. I have just sent my first baby into Big School and second baby into Preschool. I also lost it at the black school shoe purchase 😉 Thanks to the pupil free days, Baby (1) and I have not yet been left alone without the other two. I imagine when that happens next week we will spend quite a bit of time just staring at each other, wondering what to do. Love your blog xo

    • lunchlady says:

      Hey thank you SO MUCH for your kind words. It’s great to have you here. I’m sure you and your littlest will find it strange in the beginning, our house has had the two youngest start prep and now there is no one, but it has already start to feel normal.
      So glad you found me. x
